AMI Bourgogne Rouge “Nuages”
Regular price $30.00
Winemaker: Paul Perarnau and Willy Roulendes
Appellation: Burgundy, France
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir
This Bourgogne Rouge comes from the village of Chassey-le-Camp, home to a
famous Neolithic archaeological site. There is a sandy terroir below this plot, which
leads to a wine that is on the lighter side. We find bright strawberries, rose petals,
and even a hint of cranberries on the nose. There is a zippy yet lingering finish. This
would pair great with charcuterie, grilled or pan seared pork chops cooked simply
(not too much sauce), or even a bowl of fresh strawberries or cherries.
Willy and Paul are fast becoming two of the most exciting winemakers in Burgundy! Both are natives of Roussillon. Willy worked previously at Domaine de Montille in Puligny-Montrachet and was the head winemaker at Clos de Moulin aux Moines in Auxey-Durresses, while Paul worked previously at Oronce de Beler in Vosne-Romanée and also at Domaine Hauvette in Saint Rémy de Provence. They are négociants who only work with organic producers in their region. There are no additives used in the winemaking process, nothing artificial, and in some cases, no sulfites added during the winemaking process. The red wines are made with Pinot Noir and occasionally Gamay, while the whites are made with Chardonnay and Aligoté.
